ENGLISH transcript of the interview with special thanks to @big_seunghyun
MCs: We will introduce the hottest 5 icons, BIGBANG! Here is style icon GD!
MC: Here is the handsome Jamsil Handsome Guy, TOP!
MC: Is this a wig?
MCs: Here we have all 5 of BIGBANG on our show! What an honor! Sticky rice cakes~
TOP: YG building restaurant is not THAT great. I really wanted to come out on TV and say that.
MC: So TOP doesn't really like to show his skin a lot. TOP: Well, it's a habit not to show my skin.
GD: But TOP had to show his skin in a movie not long ago. (LOL)
TOP: I think it's a mental problem that I have. I just really don't like showering with my members!
MCs: Then do you like watching girls shower? Your girlfriends? TOP: I wouldn't know, I've never dated.
BAE BAE DANCE YJS: WHAT ARE YOU DOING!!
YJS: TOP is bigger, do the dance with TOP. *Dances* PMS: Where are you touching!
MCs on DAE's hair. DS: I usually do eye make up, but for this hairstyle I didnt
RI: Dae really likes his nose a lot. When he broke his nose before, he wanted to just keep it the same.
YJS: All the BB members are actually really good at impersonating CEO YANG.
GD: Seungri is in the middle of the group during the choreo and YG said, "I monitored you guys and I don't think Seungri should be in the middle... I think it'll break the image/flow.
TOP: When my speakers broke, I was searching to buy some more. But YG called me saying called me saying, 'I heard you've been looking for speakers. I'll give you my card to buy it."
TOP: "He (ceo yang) is rich! He can afford to buy me speakers!"
TOP: "But YG called me back after I bought the speakers, 'I told you to buy speakers, not a house!'"
MC: You are also very good at Yoon Moonshik's impersonation. TOP: *does impersonation*
TOP: *After impersonation* "He said that, 'TOP is the best at my impersonation!'"
Taeyang does Cho Yong Pil's impersonation. MCs: "What...? That's not like him at all..." -___-
YSJ: Daesung! Aren't you good at impersonation CEO Yang?
DAE: Well, I can copy his motions, not voice.
MC: When you guys copy CEO Yang, doesn't he get angry and ask you guys to stop?
RI: No he likes it!
YSJ: What's the diff. between doing solos and promoting as a group?
GD: The cons? Bad stuff?
MC: Seems like none of you are afraid of each other? GD: No, there is a member we used to be scared of.
GD: Seungri used to be scared and afraid of me and do everything I say LOL
TOP: *Tells story about how a long time ago Seungri never cooked the barbeque when eating KBBQ*
RI: But now I'm really good at cooking meat! I do it for all of them now!
GD: Sometimes we will drink alcohol during our recording sessions.
MC: ?? You drank while recording?
GD: Yes, drinking during recording helps bring out a very fun vibe to the song. TOP hyung likes to drink
TOP: Yes, I love to drink, but now I'm not as great as drinking as Taeyang. He's gotten better.
RI: TOP hyung is very charismatic and fierce, but when he's drunk he gets REALLY cute!
RI: When Taeyang drinks and gets drunk, he'll get very scary and go, "WHAT? I'M NOT DRUNK!"
TOP: Seungri gets really crazy. He'll dance like this *dances*. I think he exerts all his stage stress and energy into the dances when he's drunk."
RI: TOP brought 12 bottles of wine for us before and he was teaching us how to drink all these in order.
MC: Did you guys drink ALL that wine? BB: Yes, we drank all 12 bottles in that one sitting.
YJS: Is Loser a song written about your own experiences? Do you guys think of yourselves as losers?
GD: I guess since we, too, are human... we feel the same emotions as others. Like loneliness...
GD: The emptiness we feel after concerts and we just all go into our own separate rooms.. I guess...
DAE: I'm very upset right now. I'm not a loser. I can see through the hair! I can see what youre saying.
GD: We do a lot of rapping, but sometimes it gets all tangled up. For once, when I did Niliria There's a rap part I messed up on and kept saying, "I'm a pole, you're a sausage x10"
TOP: During my DOOM DADA rap part, I messed up and just went, "People flowing with cells kjdshfjklsdhgl"
DAE: When we did Japan tours, our Korean and Japanese would get mixed up all the time!
DAE: Like when we do Fantastic Baby, we start off in Korean lyrics and end in Japanese
DAE: Seungri was supposed to scream like "wahh!!" but he ended up starting at the wrong tone, "wuhhh~"
TY: "GTaeSeung (GD TY RI) are the most popular in Japan~"
RI: There was a time when I got injured by one of the stage fireworks and it hit my eye.
DAE: Usually when stars get hurt, they try not to show it, but Seungri ALWAYS goes, "OW!!" and shows it
GD: There was a time when Seungri would be like, "Let's go kill 'em~" when we go on stage. #confidence
RI: CEO Yang usually takes part in our albums, but for this album, he just let us do our own thing.
GD: During an interview, I made the mistake of joking that, "Well YG doesn't make the songs."
GD: I didn't think he (YG) would check every little interview, but I guess he was offended lol
GD: When we were trainees, there were CCTV cameras installed.
GD: When trainees, we laid down cuz we're tired, but YG texts us "Why aren't you practicing?"
RI: When we went to a club a long time ago, we saw a new DJ named G-Park.
PMS: Yes, that was me.
PMS: Yes, my DJing name is G-Park... I took the idea from G-Dragon. LOLOL
RI: It turns out that half the songs Myungsoo hyung uses for his DJing is G-Dragon hyung's songs(laughs)
TY: For TOP hyung, if there's something that he doesn't want to do, he won't do it. For instance there was that survival program for trainees and they called out senior YG artists to judge but only TOP hyung didn't show up. CEO Yang was a little appalled by his absence, but he (ceo yang) can't really say stuff to TOP a lot." MC: "Is he scared of TOP?"
TOP: But I guess doing all that judging stuff isn't really my "thing"? It doesn't fit with me (laughs).
GD: But TOP was filming a movie at the time, so he was preoccupied with that than coming to judge.
TOP: With gifts, CEO Yang always goes, "That's the thing I bought you right?" for 8 years straight!
YJS: So CEO Yang said in an interview that he wants to stay with BIGBANG for another 20 years?
GD: Yes, but he doesn't say those kinds of things when he's around us.
TOP: What's very touching about CEO Yang's thoughts is that our personalities are all so hard to deal so hard to deal with, but if we can, of course we want to stay with YG for 20+ years."
TOP: All of our members all have such different dispositions, so it attracts us together well. No fights
MC: Ri, you were chosen from an audition program, right?
RI: Yes, several. I've even auditioned for SM.
RI: GD was actually extremely against the group "BIGBANG" since he and Taeyang were supposed to be a duo
RI: During predebut days, we heard GD angrily say, "Why do we have to be a group with those guys?"
RI: But GD and Taeyang trained together for 6 years; it's understandable to be angry about new members.
RI: GD didn't talk to us for months, but ONE thing led us to become close... a K-drama "Goong"!!
RI: GD would come up to us and be like, "What time is Goong playing tonight?" (LOLOL)
TY: GD really likes dramas about Korean history (old folk drama). RI: GD LOVES Queen Seondeok!!!
MC: Was there ever any issue or complexion you dealt with Daesung?
DAE: Yes, my smile.
DAE: Well, everyone would ask me, "What are you always smiling about?" and get angry.
GD: But Daesung smiled so much to the point that it was scary. He just smiled at everything.
MCs: Has BIGBANG ever been through any hardships? GD: We've gone through about 3 years of tough times.
GD: All five of us would share only 2 bunk beds, etc... it was hard."
RI: We lived with rats, too.
TOP: We used to be so hungry and starving that we would guy bulk packages of food and just suck on it.
TY: Our manager hyung had crackers, but Jiyong and I were so hungry, we held each other and cried a lot.
TY: Our parents were busy... GD: And we never really had time to go back to our family home (trainee)
PMS: You started training since you were around 10-12 years old, right? Was it easier to start early?
GD: Well, YG used to give me homework when I was a young trainee and it really helped. But it's something that you don't just earn right away, you have to learn to grow.
MC: You guys (esp GD) are so into fashion and so good. And you go to so many fashion events.
MCs: Does only GD get invited to all the famous fashion parties & events?
TY: No, actually, we all do.
TY: We also get clothes from Karl Lagerfeld, all five of us.
DAE: Uh... where's mine? I never got it!
MC: You've promoted a lot in Japan, Daesung, right? GD: DS is #1 in Japan of all of us!
DAE: No, no I'm not!
TOP: The Japanese fans really like a sexy guy.. Dae's nickname is "Danger".
TY: The Japanese fans really like Daesung's nose.
MCs: LMFAO his nose???
DAE: Well, the Japanese fans would take ice molds of my nose and make jellies and such.
MC: Even when GD is out of breath at the end of his performances, the fans scream when he winks at them.
RI: GD is really good at shaking the fans' fangirling emotions. He likes to use formal & informal words.
RI: When GD uses both formal & informal Korean, fans love it. I copied it once, but they said I was being rude!
RI: TOP just introduces himself with his deepest voice, "Hello, I'm TOP."
TOP: *dumbfounded laugh*
RI: When Taeyang introduces himself, he goes, "What's my name?!" they respond "TAEYANG!!" over & over.
RI: When Daesung tries to introduce himself, he tries to open his tiny eyes as wide as possible! DAE: !!
TOP: Why are you doing this to us?
RI: We're on Happy Together!
TOP: I'm gonna kill him when we're done^^
MC: If you guys were girls, who would you want to date among the members?
RI: I want to date myself.
MC: You know when you get very embarrassed at your past actions and kick your blankets? We have some moments!
MC: We have an embarrassing blanket-kick-worthy moment of Daesungs.
MC: Here's Seungri's embarrassing moment.
MC: Here's Taeyang's embarrassing moment...
TY: That was during Monster MV filming and at the time I thought it was a cool hairstyle.
MC: Now it's time for Midnight Cafeteria time where all five members will share unique recipes!
MC: Which members of BIGBANG are good at cooking? Are any of you good?
BB: Taeyang is really good.
MC: Who are the worst at cooking?
GD: ...Probably me.
TOP: I'm not very good, but I have simple recipes
MC: How about Daesung's cooking?
DAE: Well, ever since Family Outing, I...
YJS: You sucked at cooking!
MC: The first food item is... choco cookie??? WTF is this?!
MC: How do you eat this?! This isn't yours is it?
GD: Erm... hehe, well I'm very bad at cooking.
MC: What's the name of this dish?
GD: Daljiyong~ (Dalji in Korean means: It's sweet)
MC: The second dish... whoa!!! What is this? This looks amazing! Whose is it??
MC: This is jjajang ramyun w/ pollack roe! Yum! It's TOP's.
TY: But not all families keep pollack roe...
MCs: Wow, this is so delicious!
TY: But... (keeps on trying to make TOP's recipe look bad LOL)
MC: Ths is called TOP-guri! (Wordplay of Krn ramyun Neo-guri)
PMS: This is so good, we forgot about GD's
MC: The third fish.. wow!! What is this? Kimbab? Kimchi kimbab? So unoriginal tho
TY: Kimbab is very common, but mine is special because there is squid inside as well~
MC: What do you think of Taeyang's dish TOP?
TOP: *Imitate TY* "But not all families keep squid!!"
MC: Here's the fourth dish... wow!!! This looks so good!
